NBA Won't Hold 2021 All-Star Game As Scheduled In Indianapolis 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Aug 17, 2020 10:11 pm

The 2021 NBA All-Star Weekend will not be held as scheduled, an NBA spokesperson told Fieldhouse Files.


“Given the uncertainty surrounding the schedule for the 2020-21 NBA season, we and the Indiana Pacers informed our hotel partners in Indianapolis that NBA All-Star 2021 is unlikely to take place on Presidents’ Day weekend so they could make other arrangements. More information about next season’s schedule, including NBA All-Star, will be announced at a later date.”


The NBA tentatively plans on beginning next season in December.


The following statement from Pacers Sports & Entertainment president & COO Rick Fuson was provided to Fieldhouse Files:


“We have been working with the NBA since 2017 to bring our fans and our city this world-class event, just as we did when we last hosted in 1985. While it appears NBA All-Star 2021 is unlikely to happen on Presidents’ Day weekend, we are excited about continuing to collaborate with the NBA as we look to the future.”


The NBA has already scheduled its next two All-Star Games for Cleveland (2022) and Salt Lake City (2023).
